People living in the Dereham, Swaffham and Watton areas will get the chance to meet with their local officers after the bank holiday weekend.

PCSO Daren Smith and PCSO Michala Benton will hold a surgery on the No 11 Konnect bus service when it departs at 10.25am on Tuesday, May 2 from Dereham Market Place.

PCSO Daren Smith said: “We are delighted to extend this project to the more rural communities. This will be a great opportunity to meet passengers and listen to their experiences and issues. From now on we will be on board the No 11 bus weekly and look forward to meeting members of the community.”

People speak with PCSOs about concerns they may have and find out what is being done to keep the community safe.
